I heard from a friend that it's good to feed beef liver in small quantities once a week.....Hmm....so I got this bloody package of grass-fed beef liver today :blink:....so what am I supposed to do with it? Bake it? Boil it? It looks really disgusting, so I'm sure my pups will love it if I can figure out how to cook it.

I tried mixing some with other ingredients, I think it was flour and peanut butter. The recipe said to chop it in the blender. The only thing more gross than the bloody package is pureeing it. Ewww. I'm anxious to see the answers you get. ;)

I've done the chicken livers before (yuck) I ground it up with
other chicken parts and cooked it. I really really hate the look,
the feel, the smell of LIVER!!! I'm so glad it's hard to get on
this island.

Sophia -I agree with Jo. You can saute it. Not even sure if you need to dust it in flour though. Probably use some of the coconut oil and just saute for 3 minutes or so on each side. Then you can cut it up or puree it. I'm one of those people who will eat calves liver only in a very good french restaurant and they usually saute it with bacon and onions. Alas not for the dogs!! Where'd you get the liver? At farmers market or Citeralla? Is it grass fed or grass finished?

I love liver, chicken liver, beef liver i love it. When i cook liver for my husband and i and spray a casserole dish with the crisco spray and slice onion and place on bottom and sprinkle with broiled steak seasoning on both sides and then add sliced onion on the top cover and bake. I have never made liver for the pups i guess i would saute in coconut oil and chop into very fine pieces.

Try a saute in coconut oil.

It's a cook people food, too. If you don't like the taste of it, grate cooked liver into ground bison or ground sirloin hamburger patties.

Grass-fed beef liver is one of the healthiest foods out there. I wish my store had it more than once or twice a year.

Here is a recipe that i have made for Tyson -

Add fresh liver to boiling water. Boil for 5 - 10 minutes until not pink.
Remove liver from water and rinse with cold water under the tap and also remove white foamy stuff and/ or slime.
Pat the liver dry with a paper towel.
Place liver on a cookie sheet and bake in preheated 200 degree oven about 20 minutes until it looks leathery. It should not break when you pick it up.
Cut the liver into bite sized pieces. Can store in the freezer.

You can puree it, then mix in some flour and one egg white. A dash of garlic powder (a dash won't hurt but entices with the scent of it.)
Spread in a greased pan and bake until done...don't make the layer too thick. Cut into squares and freeze what you're not using. A little goes a long way. Makes great training treats.

Wow!! :w00t: Thanks so much for all the tips and techniques!! I'm going to have to try all the different ways of making it!!

So for today, I sauteed it in coconut oil and then cut it up in small pieces (with a fork in my left hand :HistericalSmiley:)...and the fluffs LOVED it!! Wow!! They love anything kind of stinky!! I tried a tiny bite myself, and it wasn't so bad...

It is grass-fed...I got it from FreshDirect...I don't think I will ever enjoy handling that bloody slippery thing...but I guess I'm willing to do it for my little balls of love!! :wub:

Thanks everyone, again!

Dusting in flour is mostly done to avoid a big mess when you sautee it in oil. This is the way I use to cook liver for Alex. I would not cook beef liver that way for us. I have a special recipe for us. French do not use beef or even calve liver for sautee. We use veal liver. I might buy calve liver under the condition the color is very very light and close to the color of veal liver. It's very difficult to find here in the States.
